MANAGING CAREER CHANGES
This course will teach you how to manifest your career vision into reality with a strategic approach to manage your career change and ensure you are moving forward. Nobody likes career changes—but did you know that the average person changes his/her career more than 7 times in their lifetime?
CHANGES ARE INEVITABLE
As your work and personal circumstances change, you may self-reflect, assess the situation, and make course corrections. You might want to switch lanes to a job that better suits your skill sets or because of challenges like moving to a new place, or health issues. While at times unpleasant, these changes are the basis for career and personal progression.
TRANSITIONS ARE PERSONAL
For some individuals, the transition may be voluntary as they consciously make the decision to make a change. The mental preparation for a change may start years before taking the first step. For others, a transition can be involuntary as organisations downsize or move jobs overseas, seeing employee retrenchment. The latter is often difficult for individuals and their families. If left unchecked, the stress can have an adverse impact on an individual’s psychological well-being, resulting in a loss of confidence and self-esteem.

With work being central in our life, new ways of work are emerging. The 9-5 workday is only one option. From the late 20th century and early 21st century, there is a growing trend to multiple careers, and a range of employment patterns to balance work and personal commitments.
Concurrent multiple careers
Workers with concurrent multiple careers work at two careers simultaneously, with one career being dominant, or to pursue a creative need. Often, such careers are also regarded as a “hyphenated” professional identity.

Life is an echo
Career transition is the close of one life stage and shift in career path, and the process of finding and moving into a new career. For some, the transition may be voluntary as individuals consciously make the decision to make a change. It may start years before taking the first step.
For others, a transition can be involuntary as organisations downsize or globalise and move jobs overseas. This sees employee retrenchment which is often difficult for individuals and their families. It impacts on an individual’s psychological well-being that results in loss of confidence and self-esteem.
